Default 2005 Ford Explorer 2 18" Obsidian Audio AQ2200

Started basically a ground up build.

New head unit


New Subs


Plotting out bracing, port, etc


Gluing and building box






Bracing





My nephew in the box. lol. He actually went in through the port and back out it.

I talked my brother into TRYING to do the same thing.


Not loaded


Loaded

Still things left to do. Wire subs, finish amp rack, sound deadener on gate.
I will see how this box sounds and then decide on paint/covering, etc.

Originally I wasn't going to add another baffle since I had to stay under the window line, but that has been blown out of the water now so I may. May invert the subs as well. I got the plans from someone else and that is the port I was told to build. It is tuned to 32hz.

I would be open to suggestions. I know nothing of box design, thus why I reached out to someone else to help.

How wide is the box? I have an explorer with two 18s and it's below the window and it's 13 cubes with subs side by side.
